The river has been fishing well and some areas that were iced over are now open due to the slight warm up we have enjoyed these past few days. We are in winter mode now, try midges, egg patterns, worms and leeches. Streamer fishing can be productive this time of year as well.
Midges, eggs and worms have been the ticket for nymphing. Leeches and scuds should prove effective as well.

Streamer fishing has been fair to decent. Try swinging flies, or retrieving them at a slower speed to better imitate the forage found in the river in Winter, leeches, crayfish and bait fish.
